Thought this was a very interesting dream I had last night.
I am not religous. However, I don't deny religion and if people believe in their religion it may well be a reality for them.
I have come across Gog and Magog briefly over time without ever spending anytime reading up on them very much. If you asked me about them I would not
be able to tell you anything specific.
My dream last night invovled two men playing a game. Their names were Gag and Magog. The names kept been repeated in the dream, over and over. It
wasn't anything horrible or nightmarish or end of the world scenario. They were simply playing a game.
The only other thing that came out of the dream was a connection that Gog and Magog were either already here or were on their way here. They would be
appearing out of Russia. I have nothing against Russia. I have no resentment against Russia or anyhting like that. It was just another element of the
Anyway I woke up with the names ringing in my head. I passed no remarks on it and didn't realise until about 30mins later that I knew those names
Anyway this is from wiki for those not familar with the two:
The author of the Book of Revelation, from the end of the 1st century CE, tells how he sees in a vision Satan rallying Gog and Magog, "the nations in
the four corners of the Earth," to a final battle with Christ and his saints:
When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the
Earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.
After the defeat of Satan and his forces a New Jerusalem descends from Heaven, but it contains no Temple, "because the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb
are its temple" (Revelation 21:22).
By the end of the 1st century CE Jewish tradition had long since changed Ezekiel's "Gog from Magog" into "Gog and Magog", the ultimate enemies of
God's people, to be destroyed in the final battle. Ezekiel's Gog from Magog was a symbol of the evil darkness of the north and the powers
hostile to God, but in Revelation, Gog and Magog have no geographic location, and instead represent the nations of the world, banded together for
the final assault on Christ and those who follow him.
not happy reading that.
I am also in Ireland. I couldn't believe when I found this link which I have never come across before;
Gog and Magog in Ireland
"Gog and Magog giving Paddy a Lift Out of the Mire." From Punch magazine, 1846
Works of Irish mythology, including the Lebor Gabála Érenn (the Book of Invasions), expand on the Genesis account of Magog as the son of Japheth and
make him the ancestor to the Irish through Partholón, leader of the first group to colonize Ireland after the Deluge, and a descendant of Magog, as
also were the Milesians, the people of the 5th invasion of Ireland. Magog was also the progenitor of the Scythians, as well as of numerous other races
across Europe and Central Asia. His three sons were Baath, Jobhath, and Fathochta.
anyway thought it was strange to be dreaming about them. need to finish this up now as a bird just flew into my house. guess the superstitious among
you will love that.
